Brazil is an important business partner for Greater Seattle and Washington state, importing over $2.6 billion in merchandise from Washington state in 2013. Brazil also recognizes the importance of entrepreneurialism, as seen with PRIME, a project launched by Brazil’s Financing Agency for Projects & Studies (FINEP) which supports startups.
About the Delegation
The main purpose is to introduce Brazil and its opportunities to American companies interested in foreign trade in order to foster business and strengthen relationship between both countries. It will be also a great moment to meet American executives to know more about the regulation and opportunities in the visited states, as well as its best practices and success cases, aiming to promote and establish business partnerships.
